    Ok guys, I need a little input from those of you out there who do site work and/or use a reversible plate compactor for back fill purposes.

    Starting to gear up for some larger site work projects and I'm looking at what options there are out there for a reversible plate compactor in the 10k-14k compaction force classes.

    Thanks!

    Well we have a Weber CR8, that does 16,650lbs of centrifugal force.

    The CR7 or CR6 are a little smaller and might be what your looking for. Weber is top of the line, we really like ours. But big $$$. I usually tell people if your getting a good compactor expect to pay about $1 a lb of centrifugal force, if buying new. We use it for hardscaping. We got ours from Reliable Equipment in Manchester, NH.

    Wacker Neuson is a quality product, same with Mikasa. I own both and have never had a problem.

    Thanks Prodirt- I've started to keep an eye out for some good units and that one right there does seem to fit the bill.
